At the Vancouver Fishing and Outdoors Show
the BCFDF, along with Department of Fisheries and Oceans, presented the
"Pathways to Fishing", a program to teach young children (and
some not so young) the art of fishing. Here are some pictures of various
booths and volunteers taken at the shows.
Booth presentations included fish identification, rod and
reel selection, baits and lures, knot tying, angling ethics and safety,
handle with care (catch and release), fishing locations in our area, and
Each child was presented with a certificate of achievement, and a tackle
box full of goodies from Berkley. In the 3 days of the show we put well
over 1000 kids through the program.
This was all repeated at the Fraser Valley Fishing and Outdoor Show, Abbotsford
We also did another Pathways Event
at Army & Navy dept. store in New Westminster, and seen another 300
kids! Thats approximately 2500 kids that have a better understanding of
fishing and proper ethics.
All in all this was an overwhelming success, hats off to harry colivas,
and wayne goeson for their work in organizing this great event!!
